Review quote

"'Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift he is a satirist of enormous talent ... incredibly funny ... compulsively readable'" The Times "'Pratchett is at the peak of his power; it's hard to think of any humorist writing in Britain today who can match him'" Time Out "'The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody ... who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences'" -- A.S. Byatt New York Times "'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction'" Mail on Sundayshow more
